Carlisle Announces Option Agreement on Johnson & Johnson Property

TORONTO, June 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carlisle Goldfields Limited ("Carlisle" or the "Company") (TSX:CGJ) is pleased to announce that it has successfully reached an agreement to option the Johnson & Johnson Property (the "J&J Property") near Lynn Lake, Manitoba. The J&J Property, located along the Johnson Shear due west of Carlisle's Linkwood Project, completes Carlisle's Dunvegan Zone land package.

Carlisle's President and CEO, Bruce Reid commented that: "We are pleased to add the Johnson & Johnson Property to our exploration portfolio. It is the last piece of the puzzle to completing the Dunvegan Zone. This property is an area of significant and strategic interest to Carlisle as it is located in the heart of the Johnson Shear where the Company has already had great success with the Burnt Timber and Linkwood Projects. We look forward to unlocking the potential value we believe this property holds."

Under the terms of the option agreement, Carlisle has agreed to incur an aggregate of $2,000,000 of exploration expenditures on or before June 1, 2016, make three annual cash payments of $100,000 upon signing and $100,000 on or before June 1, 2014 and June 1, 2015 and a final cash payment of $2,000,000 on or before June 1, 2016. The vendor has reserved a net smelter return royalty of 2.5% of which one half may be purchased for $1,250,000 to reduce the royalty to 1.25%.

The J&J Property is located approximately 10 km south of Lynn Lake, Manitoba and 4 km west of Carlisle's Burnt Timber and Linkwood Projects along strike on the Johnson Shear. Historical geophysics and drilling on the J&J Property identified three areas of mineralization called the Foster Chopper Veins, the Austin Vein and the Johnson Vein.

The J&J Property was previously drilled during the 1980s. Historical drill data on the Foster Chopper Veins includes Hole F87-7 which intersected 0.082 ounces of gold per ton ("opt Au") and 0.10 oz of silver per ton ("opt Ag") over 19.5 feet [2.8 grams of gold per tonne ("g/t Au") and 3.4 grams of silver per ton ("g/t Ag") over 5.9 metres ("m")]. Hole F88-7 intersected 0.049 opt Au and 0.05 opt Ag over 20.5 feet [1.7 g/t Au and 1.7 g/t Ag over 6.3 m] and 0.058 opt Au as well as 0.03 opt Ag over 23.0 feet [2.0 g/t Au and 1.0 g/t Ag over 7.0 m].

Carlisle plans to begin IP geophysics on the J&J Property later in 2013.
